You have to name the expansion pack tomorrow because You Have To Name The Expansion Pack is launching tomorrow! What will you name the expansion pack tomorrow, June 5th, when You Have To Name The Expansion Pack is released?*
* Admittedly, this is a rhetorical question. Feel free to share your expansion pack name in the comments though.
To repeat: You Have To Name The Expansion Pack goes live tomorrow!
… and if you’re on Steam, so does the Dungeons of Dredmor Steam Workshop.
Let us take this moment to review the features during this super-fun review! Gaslamp Games takes no responsibility for conniptions caused by experience of super-fun.
4 new skill-lines: Defend the queen with your steam-powered mechanical might as the Clockwork Knight, discover and utilize uniformly dangerous devices as the Rogue Scientist, use rocks to kill people the way nature intended as the Battle Geologist, and be a wizard that really wishes they were a warrior, with the skill that features one of the most ridiculously over-scripted spells in the game thus far, with Warlockery.
(Some old favourites in the core game have been given an overhaul as well, particularly some rebalancing of Astrology and a touch of zombie-master powder added to Fleshsmithing. And for those who harbor a secret, shameful love of crafting, all craft skill lines have been extended and each can craft some kind of item to give even more crafting skill for those really high level recipes. In the Realm of the Diggle Gods, Piracy‘s Broadside also got some more oomph, and probably a bunch of other stuff I don’t remember.)
But that’s not all. We couldn’t just leave it at that. Unnatural urges combined with a pack of manic modders mobbing mod development compelled us to include even more in this expansion pack which must be named.
Dredmor’s dastardly labyrinth of death has been extended by a series of twisty little rooms, all different, ranging from the Lutefisk Kitchen (it is filled with lutefisk and love) to the Commando Control Centre (it is filled with Commandos and controls, presumably) to some room that has this comment attached to it:
<!– It’s a room shaped like a foot. That’s all. –>
And minecarts. You mustn’t forget the minecarts.
Oh, and there are Tesla coils with attendant robots, naturally:
But what use is a room if it isn’t filled with monsters trying to kill you for stealing their eggs? No use at all, we say! Here is a list of new types of Diggle:
- Diggle Mage
- Diggle Archmage
- Diggle Artist
- Diggle Rocketeer
- Diggle Insurrectionist
- Deep Diggle Chef
- Deep Diggle Astronaut
- Deep Diggle Smith
- Deep Egg-laying Diggle
- Deep Fungus Diggle
(We did, however, have Mr. Triolo create one new monster for this expansion. You’ll find it soon enough.)
I’ve strayed a bit from any official list and the coffee-shakes are hitting me again, so the heck with it, I’ll just dump the rest of the screenshots and get it done with.
- Clockwork Knights – Ruigi
- Practical Geology – Null
- Warlockery, Essential Core Skills Rebalance, Essential Expansion Skills Rebalance – Essence
- Interior Dredmorating (rooms) – Bergstrom
- Monstrous Menagerie (monsters) – FaxCelestis
What were the odds that I found this while ruthlessly checking the home page? probably about one. Anyway I came here only to say and promptly run away from all retaliation first! Seriously though this thing is great
Happy am I!
(by the way, that is not the name of the expansion pack. That was just an outburst of joy.)
YAY! Great stuff, glad that you devs are involved with the community :^)
I can’t come up with a clever expansion name. “DIGGLES GONNA DIGGLE”
I’ll name it myself then:
Dreadmoar – The Digglefying Expansion
I’m so going to name is Project Odin, then post pics all over the forums. YOU CAN’T STOP ME, NO ONE CAN!!!
Ow! My conniptor!
Dungeons of DreadmorE
Just sayin’, if you love crafting, you’re gonna love the new Perception. Just sayin’. 🙂
This was probably the coolest thing that any game designer has ever done. Ever. I hope we get to do it again someday.
Also, don’t blame Nicholas for the Diggles with the ranged Corruption missile. Blame Fax. FAAAAAAAAAXXX!!!
That is all.
Oh man, I woke up bright and early this morning (June 5th), ready for some extra Dredmor, but then I realised Timezones are actually a thing and it’s still the 4th over in Canadaland.
You guys are the best. Keep up the good work~
How’s this “Dungeons of Dredmor: Sublet of Gnawing Bureaucracy”
Also, I’ve played a few times recently, but I’d like a hint. Has any Marston related stuff made it into the game? Ilko’s been asking me about it.
So I bought DoD about a week ago and it’s seriously one of the funnest games i’ve played.
It’s rad y’all are releasing a free DLC to go with it!
I’ma name it “Dungeons of Dredmor: The Flaming Loins of Doom”.
“The Expansion Pack That Adds Clockwork Knights, Rogue Scientist, Battle Geology, and Warlockery”
This. So much this.
Dungeons of Dredmor: Judge Dred
Dungeons of Dredmor: Mor Dred
Dungeons of Dredmor: Dred Lurgy
Dungeons of Dredmor: Red Dred Redemption
(I have more, these are just off the top of my head.)
“MoreDread: Where It Counts”
You know, I almost wish there never was a beta, so that we could pour over all these screenshots and tear them all apart to try to find out what content awaits us.
Dungeons of Dreadmor: Diggle Stuff Pack
Dungeons of Dreadmor: The Dungeonowner Stimulus Package
Dungeons of Dreadmor: (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻
I’d like to see the podcasters pronounce that last one..
Dungeons of Dredmor: Modder’s Revolution
: Mod Mod Revolution
: Big Book of Dred
Expansion name? How about “Mor to Dred”? You know, cuz there’s, uh, more… uh… to dread? I guess?
“DoD: A Clockwork Potato”
DoD:TEPFNYHTNTEP, short for:
Dungeons of Dredmor: The Expansion Pack Formerly Named You Have To Name The Expansion Pack
Dungeons of Dredmor: Expansion 2 – Electric Boogaloo.
DoD: We’re too lazy to come up with our own content so we had the community do it for us, because we are awesome like that.
DoD: Fist Full of Diggle
DoD: Fist Full of Lutefisk
DoD: There is no name for the expansion. There is only Zuul.
That’s all I got.
DoD: Fistful of Diggle*
DoD: Fistful of Lutefisk*
Also, came up with one more:
Dungeons of Dredmor: Why AREN’T you playing this game?!
We actually seriously considered “A Fistful of Lutefisk” for the name.
Dungeons of Dredmore: Odds & Ends
DoD: The Diggle Jubilee
Dungeons of Dreadmor 1.x: Diggles Gone Wild!
Diggles on Parade
Vampire Diggles from Mars (with 50% more Lutefisk)
It sohuld be named: Steal This Expansion :>
DoD: “@ the Heart of Gehennom”
name: Dungeons of Mordred
Dungeons of Dreadmor: The Monstrous Redecorating Balancing Clockrock Warlock’s Workshop!
It’s pieced together from the names of the mods included and the fact that there’s now a DoD Steam Workshop. 🙂 Probably far too long but still…
Dungeons of Dredmor: Dungeon HARDER
Pingback: Dungeons of Dredmor free expansion out today
The Pack should be named “Krong’s Workshop”
“The jigglywigly giggling diggles”?
Dungeons of Dredmor : Your Degree in Dungeoneering Still Means Nothing.
Shut Up and Take My Zorkmids!
Brax Still Has a No Clue What You Need
Perception is Overpowered
You Will Need To Teleport
here’s one: Dungeons of dredmor; Diggle Deeper
Okay, here’s a name that sprang to mind.
If somebody has already said this, ignore me, if several people have already said this, call me names.
Dungeons of Dredmor: The Expansion pack must not be named (nearly as cumbersome as our current title)
I bought Dredmor Complete from Steam, but somehow didn’t notice it didn’t automatically install this ‘free’ expansion so I’ve been playing without it!
You should add this to Dredmor and Dredmor complete on Steam so people aren’t missing out.
Or why not just patch this right into the base?
